"Smoking cigars" Myanmar (Burma) Local Custom Tip by hydronetta

Myanmar (Burma) Local Customs: 149 reviews and 220 photos


A not so uncommon sight in Myanmar is to see women smoking these localy produced cigars. In fact I tried one myself and bought several ones from Inle lake at local producing factory. Smoke is stripped around a dried leaf and a natural filter is added. No chemicals added.
The blend smelled nice there, I can;t say it tastes the same back at home... (some things taste better where they produced)
